Have you seen this item?
I know of one instance where loading the ehci_hcd driver
instantly fixed a problem connecting to a camera with USB.

The funny thing: It was a usb 1.1 machine, not USB 2.0 as
mentioned in the knowledgebase article.

OTOH: I have all sorts of things working out of the box in 9.1 that
cost me weeks of struggle in 8.0 and 8.1, and NEVER worked at
all in 7.2 or 7.3.

8.2 was the cleanest and sweetest SuSE of all time (IMHO) and
even there I had to hunt around trying to get certain things to
work. 9.1, in my test installs has been easier.
I'm going to put it on my Sony Vaio when I get the chance, soon.
